Storyline

Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he's such a misfit - he's gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He's an outcast and the butt of classmates' fag jokes at high school. He's different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he's a "stereotypical gay." He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian's off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men. Written by Anonymous

Realistic reflection
23 March 2006 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is better than I thought it would be! First, I found the story very realistic. It captured how Dorian struggled with his own sexuality in such a way that every person who came out can relate to. the good thing about this film is that, the coming out experience is very all rounded. it portrays denial, bargaining, acceptance, and then Dorian's adventures in the scene.

the struggle between Dorian and his father was very well portrayed too. to balance the hatred between them, there is a brother who is understanding and supportive. I have not heard of any of the actors before, and yet I found the acting above par and very convincing. i would definitely recommend this film to my friends!
